I are a 501c3, non-profit Youth Performing Arts Program that is determined to get our youth involved into positive projects and off the street. I provide a positive environment for children, youth and encourage parents to participate in these positive endeavors.
The Arts Program
Activities will have been established for youth 4-18 years of age with the anticipation that both younger and older individuals may be included in the near future. It is expected that instruction in music, (instrumental and vocal), dance, sewing and fashion design will provide the youth participants enhanced life knowledge and skills, increased self esteem and self-awareness, the value of team work, and group interaction experience.
Store Front Business
This includes projects created by youth participating in the Sewing/Fashion design program and the intergenerational program will provide entrepreneurial and job readiness experience that includes skills in leadership, personal presence, interview, communication, customer/client relationships, product display, budgeting and math.
Life Skills Training

To be accomplished through mentoring, counseling, and training programs in hygiene, nutrition, shopping (grocery and personal), cooking, money and banking (checking and savings).
